How do I prevent my shares from being loaned for a short interest position? 🎯

Brokerage firms may facilitate short selling in DJT shares by lending DJT shareholders’ shares held in margin accounts. Through this practice, brokerage firms earn an alternative source of revenue by “lending” shares to sophisticated and institutional investors who are betting that the price of the stock will fall. If the price of the stock in fact falls, then the brokerage firm and the sophisticated and institutional investors will make a profit, while the ultimate retail investor will not.

For long-term shareholders who believe in the Company’s future, the Company is highlighting the following actions you can take with your brokerage firm to prevent the lending of your shares for short selling:

1) hold your DJT shares in a cash account at your brokerage firm instead of a margin account (a model instruction letter is set forth under the heading “Example Form of Letter to Broker” below)

2) opting out of any securities lending programs, which should stop your broker from lending your shares

3) moving your shares to a Direct Registration (“DRS”) account at the Company’s transfer agent, Odyssey Transfer & Trust Company

Additionally, if shares are currently on loan by brokerage firms to facilitate short selling, shareholders have the option of asking their broker to recall their shares.

Example Form of Letter to Broker

If you decide to instruct your broker not to make your shares available for lending to short sellers, the following is sample language you can use in your email or letter to the Branch Manager of your brokerage account:

[Broker Name]
[Broker Address]

Attn: Branch Manager

My Account [Account Number]

Dear Sir or Madam:

Please accept this written instruction to make sure that the following securities are held in my cash account only and accordingly are not available for any stock loan activities. I hereby expressly opt out of any securities lending programs and instruct you not to loan out any of my shares.  Additionally, as applicable, please recall any shares that are currently on loan.

Securities:

[Number] shares of Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. (DJT) and any DJT shares subsequently acquired.

What is a registration statement filed on Form S-1?
  • A registration statement on Form S-1 is filed with the SEC as part of the process of making shares available for sale to the general public. In connection with the Business Combination, Trump Media was required to register with the SEC certain common shares and warrants issued in connection with the transaction for resale and to register common shares underlying certain debt securities and warrants for issuance to holders of those debt securities and warrants in the future. These securities, both common shares and warrants, were registered on the registration statement on Form S-1 declared effective by the SEC on June 18, 2024 (the “Registration Statement,” File No. 333-278678).).
  • Specifically, the Registration Statement registered: (1) the issuance of shares underlying outstanding warrants of the Company; and (2) the resale of securities of TMTG by selling security holders including: (a) shares of common stock previously issued to investors in connection with the initial public offering by TMTG, continued financing of TMTG or the closing of TMTG’s Business Combination; (b) shares of common stock underlying outstanding warrants and convertible debt of TMTG; (c) shares of common stock issued to TMTG’s affiliates in the Business Combination or potentially issuable to affiliates as an earn out; and (d) certain outstanding warrants of TMTG. All categories of issuances contemplated by the registration statement were disclosed in public filings prior to shareholder approval of the business combination.
  • The listing of an individual as a “selling securityholder” in the Registration Statement does not mean such individual or entity will sell their shares of common stock, and “selling securityholders” listed in the Registration Statement may be subject to a lockup or other transfer restriction.
  • The Registration Statement, while effective, allows the covered selling securityholders to publicly resell the securities covered by the Registration Statement, subject to the satisfaction by selling securityholders of the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in connection with any such resale. In addition, TMTG’s warrants covered by the Registration Statement became eligible for cash exercise on June 18, 2024. If all warrants covered by the Registration Statement are exercised for cash, TMTG may receive up to an aggregate of approximately $247 million in proceeds. Additionally, $40 million of restricted cash on the Company’s balance sheet will become unrestricted as a result of the Registration Statement becoming effective. These funds would supplement the more than $200 million in unrestricted cash on the Company’s balance sheet as of June 18, 2024.
  • The Registration Statement and prospectus may be accessed through the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. A copy of the prospectus included in the registration statement may be obtained from Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY 11717, or by telephone at (800) 353-0103.  Investors interested in exercising their warrants should contact their registered broker.
